Kindle Unlimited Now Slightly More So, Launches in the UK Amazon Kindle (platform) Rumors circulated when Kindle Unlimited launched a couple months ago that the service would go international in September or October and it looks like they're coming true.

Amazon's ebook subscription service came to the UK this morning, bringing with it a catalog of 650,000 mostly indie ebooks which Amazon's UK customers can access for r £7.99 a month. The ebooks can be read on Kindle hardware and apps, and while you won't find many titles from the major US trade publishers, you will find a few like Harry Potter and Hunger Games series.

Kindle Unlimited is currently limited to only the US and UK, but reliable sources indicate that it will launch internationally at the Frankfurt Book Fair, which is coming up in a couple weeks.
